After being traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, David Price was making his way to Toronto on Friday, when all of a sudden, his tire blew out. So he did what anyone would do in this day and age: he tweeted about it.
Sweet tire blew out on my way to the six... waiting on #AAA with bubble guts is always fun!! To trust or not to trust ?!— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) July 31, 2015
Uncccllleeeeee...no one has tires to fit the back of my car so my presence in the 6 is gonna be delayed another couple hours...unreal!— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) July 31, 2015
His old Rays teammate Chris Archer thought this was hilarious:
@DAVIDprice14 hahahaha!!!!!— Chris Archer (@ChrisArcher42) July 31, 2015
And MLB Network Radio told Price his new manager could come pick him up:
Hey @DAVIDprice14 , we have your new Manager John Gibbons on, he said he can come pick you up, let us know— MLB Network Radio (@MLBNetworkRadio) July 31, 2015
This was unfortunate timing, because, hours before this, he asked the Blue Jays to leave a trash bag full of popcorn at his locker:
All I'm asking for from @bluejays is to have the BIGGEST trashbag of popcorn waiting for me at my locker! Best popcorn EVER #sharingiscaring— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) July 30, 2015
Eventually, his car -- which is apparently named "Jenny" -- got picked up:

And the good news is: HE'S GETTING HIS TRASH BAG POPCORN!
RT @BlueJays: Sorry to hear about the car troubles @DAVIDprice14! Your locker is ready for you when you arrive! pic.twitter.com/NIz74Cj4l8— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) July 31, 2015
... which he's offering to Steph Curry, in exchange for a lay-up contest:
You can have some if you want @StephenCurry30 ...I promise you won't be disappointed!! Lay up making contest?! pic.twitter.com/3PHEiuRJgR— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) July 31, 2015
The lesson to be learned here is that, when life gets you down sometimes, trash bag popcorn makes everything better.
